Newegg.com starts selling Ivy Bridge
All five standard desktop quad-cores
Newegg.com has started to sell Intel's new Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs and apparently has all five standard desktop CPUs in stock, although limited to one or two per customer, depending on the model.
In case you missed it, the standard desktop lineup includes three Core i5 and two Core i7 CPUs. The lineup kicks off with the Core i7-3770K "unlocked" quad-core CPU that works at 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo). This one has 8MB of L3 cache and features Intel HD Graphics 4000. The next one is the "locked" Core i7-3770 working at 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo), has 8MB of L3 cache and also features HD Graphics 4000.
Both of the Core i7 Ivy Bridge CPUs have the same 77W TDP and are currently available at Newegg.com with a US $349.99 price for the Core i7-3770K and US $319.99 for the Core i7-3770 one.
The Core i5 Ivy Bridge lineup starts off with the unlocked Core i5-3570K. This quad-core works at 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) has 6MB of L3 cache and features Intel HD Graphics 4000. The Core i5-3550 works at 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo), has same 6MB of L3 cache, same 77W TDP and features Intel HD Graphics 2500. The last but not least is the cheapest of the bunch, Core i5-3450. This one works at 3.1GHz (3.5GHz Turbo), has same 6MB of L2 cache, same 77W TDP and same Intel HD Graphics 2500.
The Core i5 lineup is priced at US $249.99 for the Core i5-3570K, US $219.99 for the Core i5-3550 and US $199.99 for the cheapest Core i5-3450.
As noted earlier, the entire lineup is available for order but Core i7 lineup is limited to one per customer while Core i5 lineup is limited to two per customer. Of course, Newegg.com is more than happy to offer Z77 based motherboard in case you want to pair it with one of these Ivy Bridge CPUs.
